Sunil Gavaskar will not be attending Imran Khan’s oath-taking ceremony

But he has cleared that he won't be travelling to Pakistan and has declined the invitation. "I really hope and appeal that we have a really handsome relationship henceforth".

Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu will attend the swearing-in ceremony of Pakistan Prime Minister-designate Imran Khan on August 18.

Chinese official website 'China.org.cn' in an article has said that India can not bypass its two principal neighbors, China and Pakistan, as it has no option but to maintain good relations with them.

He said the party wanted to have amiable relations with all parties in parliament. "Right now, it is one-sided where India is constantly just blaming us". In his address to Pakistan, he said: "If India takes one step towards us, we will take two steps toward them...but at least (we) need a start".
